Online eCommerce retailers and merchants are looking for greater market share, higher revenues, increased conversion rates and better ROI for their marketing dollars. Many are realizing the resources necessary to run a thriving affiliate program are much greater than anticipated. Therefore many of them are turning to outsourced affiliate management. Advertising affiliate marketers are looking for high converting, high commission programs that pay well and deliver great partner support. Numerous affiliate marketers are using paid advertising on search engines like Google, Yahoo and Overture and they need to see a higher return for their CPA marketing dollars. Many have found that working with a responsive outsourced affiliate management company helps them get the attention and the rewards they are looking for. 5 Star Affiliate Programs and itÂs partner, the leading outsourced affiliate management company, PartnerCentric, fulfills the needs for both sides of the marketing equation.
Most recently the companies took over the affiliate management and re-launched the popular Irvs Luggage Warehouse & Executive Essentials affiliate programs which are offered at Commission Junction.

Earlier this month the companies launched the o'Gills Irish Gifts and Celtic Jewelry Affiliate Program which pays 12 -17% Commission (among the highest payouts in the jewelry space). In January the GolfTravelBags.com and RadarSource.com affiliate programs were launched adding two more affiliate programs to the existing four programs the company has launched so far for Niche Retail, a vertical marketing eCommerce company.
